Biggles – best English sausages in Marylebone.

Or at least according toLondonist who reviewed the legendary sausage shop (est. as London’s first all-sausage emporium in 1989) for St George’s Day.

The first bite almost overwhelmed us with patriotism. Images of Winston Churchill flashed, our ears rang with the stirring sound of Jerusalem and our stomachs filled with pride. For this is a superior sausage sandwich. The meat was totally without gristle. It burst with moisture and didn’t feel fatty. The spices delivered a peppering of background heat. Under normal circumstances we would have smeared it with English mustard, but unfortunately the St. George’s flag doesn’t offer scope for this in its colour palette!”

fish-and-chip-smallWe wanted a quiet, cheap meal last night so we went to the Golden Hind for fish and chips.

It was packed – upstairs and downstairs – with everyone from rowdy guys on a night out to friends having a meal and a chat.

There are three great things about the Golden Hind.

First, the fish comes grilled or fried in batter. So there is a healthy option.

Second, its bring your own bottle with no corkage fee (I’m ashamed to admit I took a £2 Tesco bottle of Bucks Fizz bubbly)

Third, its cheap

The food was delicious, my grilled skate wing slided off the bone while the salad was fresh and the chips home cooked. It only came to £23.90 for two (that is £7.40 for cod, £8.10 for skate, £1.70 for chips ect) including good old-fashioned steamed Spotted Dick for desert, which was drowned in hot custard.

The restaurant has also been around here since 1914. Now it is owned by Mr Christou, who is Cypriot, and works on the shop floor making sure everything runs smoothly.
